Abstract

Nonobstetric surgery during pregnancy is not rare. Physiologic changes due to pregnancy, the insufficiency and potential side effects of imaging methods and the vulnerability of the fetus and the mother are some of the topics that necessitate additional care during preoperative decision making, operation and postoperative care of these patients. While trying to highlight some of the maternal and fetal concerns during pregnancy for general surgeons, this review also tries to summarize some of the common surgical problems that obstetricians can face during pregnancy.
